It looks like ./jsondata/wuupdate.php script is missing so none of the external sites data (DarkSky included) is being loaded.

    • Weather34 meteobridge template
in meteobridge version wuupdate.php is not part of the forecast the forecast data is driven by mbdbfiles/stationcron.php which is called by meteobridge

Code: [Select]
<?php
if ($position6=="forecast3ds.php"){
// weather34 darksky  curl based
$url4a 'https://api.forecast.io/forecast/'.$apikey.'/'.$lat.','.$lon.'?lang='.$language.'&units='.$darkskyunit ;
$ch4a curl_init($url4a);
$filename4a '../jsondata/darksky.txt';
$complete_save_loc4a $filename4a
$fp4a fopen($complete_save_loc4a'wb'); 
curl_setopt($ch4aCURLOPT_FILE$fp4a);
curl_setopt($ch4aCURLOPT_HEADER0);
curl_exec($ch4a);
curl_close($ch4a);
fclose($fp4a);}?>

Ahh... thanks for that, Brian.  I had been unaware of the move of that code to stationcron from the original wuupdate.

no problem ken

the reason for that file difference in cumulus etc is I spent so many hours answering emails a few years ago about what is and how to use a cronjob..so i just come up with a dirty solution to kick the necessary files at periods when the template was being browsed , it doesn't do anything unless the site is being viewed it was not a perfect solution but it worked ok and Im not the best explainer of technical methods like cron jobs I guess years of using it you forget to be patient and just do it ..perhaps you might have a cleaner solution specifically for cumulus may be your aware of some function cumulus itself to trigger the file , in meteobridge as you know its just setup the http request in the services tab at whatever interval and thats it ,not sure how it works in cumulus ..
